Riders continue to head back to the track with close to fifty events taking place over the weekend. This week in the #TalesfromtheBerm our focus shifts to Canberra and Tuggeranong BMX club.

Last weekend saw the most events in one weekend since the resumption of sport, ranging from small clubbies to the popular Shootout Series in Queensland. Fantastic to see thousands of riders of varying ages and abilities all out there racing.

This week’s Tales from the Berm heads to the nation’s capital as Tuggeranong held the second round of their Corona Cup on Saturday.

The first round of the cup was unfortunately cancelled last week due to the crazy snow and rain that hit Canberra.

Over fifty riders took to the track in a marvellous day of club racing with nearly half the riders being sprockets and mini wheelers.

During this week’s round, Tuggeranong introduced an award for Sprocket and Mini Wheeler of the Week. Check out the inaugural winners Bailey and Samantha!

Such a great day today for around 2 of the Corona Cup, with so many awesome riders!

This week we introduced an award…
